People for PLAN 2019 - Movement Building Fund
By supporting the success of student programs with a measurable campus-wide impact, we empower students to see not only that institutional change is possible, but they can be the ones to make it happen.
What is The Movement Building Fund?
Many individuals find their ability to participate in the Zero Waste movement is limited by a lack of financial resources, an obstacle that is embedded in structural and institutional inequalities across race, class, ability, and gender. Our Movement Building Fund creates a pathway into the Zero Waste movement and addresses some of these financial barriers; it provides things like travel stipends to our annual conference, free advising resources to campus groups with limited funding, and health insurance stipends to our staff. As we grow, we aim to directly support people who have been historically marginalized and we will accomplish this by dedicating a portion of the Movement Building Fund’s resources to folx who have been most impacted by systemic oppression. To further understand how we see this fund growing in the future, please visit our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Mandate.
